Is it wrong to drink cold red wine?

best of tastes | Jul 29, 2002 10:09 PM

Everyone knows white wine should be refrigerated and is to be drunk cold, while red wine is to be stored and served at room temperature. But why? Is it wrong to drink cold red wine? Conversely, is it wrong to drink white wine at room temperature? Is it just tradition or is there something about the temperature that brings out the best in the flavor? Can someone explain the reasoning to me?
